If you appreciate masterful dye work, you will love this jacket. The colors, oh the colors - pastels and jeweltones all mixed and mottled on a soft and creamy silk that is a dream to wear. Look closely to see that the bottom half of the jacket seems to have been dipped in a blueish dye, though of course the coloring was done before the jacket was sewn together. Such precision.

Note that the dyer's signature stamp appears on the lower right side, which would have been hidden when the original (unmodified) jacket overlapped and snapped closed

And there's a secret pocket on the right side only!

Each Japanique Jacket starts out as a vintage michiyuki, which is a narrow jacket with snap closures meant to be worn on top of a kimono. Most vintage michiyuki won't fit larger frames, so we modified the traditional garment slightly (removed the snaps and tacked the panels back to create lapels) to make a roomier, open, flowing jacket that can fit sizes 12-18. Japanique Jackets could also be crossed over and belted on a smaller sized person. These are all one-of-a-kind jackets, so sizing will vary slightly, see measurements given.
